The RBC Hedge 250 Index, an investable benchmark composed of 250 funds, returned 1.18% in January, RBC Capital Markets announced today. That figure trailed both the finalized December return of 1.4% and the Standard & Poor’s 500, which was up 1.51% last month.
As other indices have show, January was a good month for event-driven funds. The RBC mergers & special situations index rose 2.55% in January. Strong performances were also turned in by convertible arbitrage (1.9%), multi-strategy (1.84%) and managed futures (1.65%). On the other end of the spectrum, both fixed-income arbitrage (0.1%) and macro (0.3%) were essentially flat.
